How to Live a Simple and Peaceful Life

Slow down and enjoy every task. This is the most important tip in this article. Read it twice. Whatever you’re doing, whether it’s a work task, eating, brushing your teeth, cooking dinner, driving to work: slow down. Try to enjoy whatever you’re doing. Try to pay attention, instead of thinking about other things. Be in the moment. This isn’t easy, as you will often forget, But find a way to remind yourself. Unless the task involves actual pain, anything can be enjoyable if you give it the proper attention.

Eat slowly. This is just a more specific application of taking things more slowly but it’s something we do every day, so it deserves special attention.

Drive more slowly. Another application of the same principle, driving is something we do that’s often mindless and rushed. Instead, slow down and enjoy the journey. See How to Practice Zen Driving.
